I rarely get visitors in Johor Bahru. It’s usually me who goes down to Singapore or up north to PJ/KL when there’s a function or something important going on. So it’s a good change to have someone from Singapore come over instead.
In fact, I was there only the day before to pick up some copies of Secrets of Millionaire Students from Stuart Tan‘s office and boy, were they bulky! Each book has 369 pages! This is the thickest book the AKLTG publishing house has ever produced to date. Hmm… must be Dylan Loh‘s ‘stories’ that added to the weight. 😛
Anyways, I arrived on time to meet up with the couple outside McDonald’s, City Square. (why do I always make appointments to meet for people at McDonald’s?) Then we had lunch at Vivo’s. It was nice of Pat to treat me. 🙂 I used to refuse offers to treat every time I had a meal with a new acquaintance or an old friend. I always prefer to pay my own way (and at times, counter-treat!) But I already wised up and gave in this time. Ha ha!
Okay, I think I did well in the first impression department. At least I think so. I mean, Calvin still awarded me the copywriting contract. Good thing he didn’t change his mind. 😉
That’s Calvin and Pat.
Scribbling notes… only to realize how much my handwriting hasn’t changed since kindergarten. 🙂
The City Square.
So what can I tell you about Calvin and Pat? Friendly and down to earth is how I would describe them. Calvin got his first start at making money on the Internet some 2 years ago. And did I mention that my website, Resell Rights Mastery, was one of the earliest sites he used as a resource for learning? 😉
Okay the self praise aside, the truth is that the only person that can make you succeed or go on to achieve greater heights is yourself. And Calvin knew that. And he did just that. He’s now got a healthy progress in business and is joined by his girlfriend Patricia, and 2 other close partners from other countries, Jonathan Teng and Venkatarama. Singapore, you have another rising star. 🙂
It was also interesting to listen to how they both got to know each other in the first place. Something you can never pull off in Malaysia, for sure. 😉
Thanks for coming over and looking forward to see you both again! Have fun in Maritius. 😉
